  Christmas is a hugh event here in the Philippines. Christmas music started playing in the malls in late September and you could start buying your trees and decorations at that same time. I have always thought all that should start after Thanksgiving. But after 2 and 1/2 months, I'm getting used to it.

  Elder Misalucha had invited us to his home for a Welfare Department dinner and program. He is a BYU graduate in business. They have a lovely home and are kind enough to share it with us. He oversees the Area Welfare Department and is a tremendous leader.

I have no idea what I was trying to get here, but with that 2-3 second delay on our digital camera, one can only guess. But it does look like a conspiracy.
These are the three stars for our program that night. On the far left is John Baledos. He comes from Cebu and is in our leadership in that area. He attempted to teach us 'Gangnam Style' dancing. I felt like a new colt that couldn't quite manage his legs. I'm glad no one recorded that.
In the middle is Willie (works in our office with the Fast Offerings) and then Jomel (from Employment Services). They could do a stand up routine and make good money. Willie would sing in Tagalog and Jomel would translate into English. Except he made up things. It was really funny.
Closing out the events for the night was singing, lead by Jib (far right, with Perpetual Education Fund). It was a lot of fun with some great people.
